Please attend the Graduate Student Association’s 11th Annual Multidisciplinary Conference on Monday, April 1. The conference will be held in the Grace and Lurie Conference Rooms in the University Center, beginning at 9 AM. It is a great chance to see what graduate students across the university have been working on, to build cross-disciplinary connections, and to support your students and/or colleagues. The attached schedule gives details on session times, themes, and presenter names.
Additionally, please consider attending the conference’s keynote lecture by Dr. Laureen Elgert from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (bio: http://www.wpi.edu/academics/facultydir/lxe.html). Her talk, entitled, Connecting politics and evidence: Stories of environment, economy, food security, and inclusion in private, multi-stakeholder governance, will be of interest to students and faculty interested in issues around environment, development, governance, and policy-making. The talk runs from 6:15 – 7:15 PM in the Grace Conference Room. A reception with light refreshments will follow the talk.
Again, please do your best to attend the conference–it is not necessary to attend the entire event. You are more than welcomed to come for a handful of sessions or just for the keynote. It is a great way to show your support graduate research at Clark and to learn about exciting multidisciplinary work which is being conducted in Worcester and beyond.
